THE LEOPARD TREE, a Must-read Novel about African Children

The Leopard Tree

As an adventure novel, The Leopard Tree by Tim Merriman and Lisa Brochu, is full of suspense, twists and turns, and unexpected outcomes. But the three orphaned children—with various limitations—will steal your heart. Daudi struggles with HIV that he’s had since birth, unable to pay for medicine. Masozi lost his sight and a leg when he stepped on a land mine. Ramla is unable to speak because of the atrocites she witnessed. These children reflect the reality I’ve seen in several young people from a Kenyan refugee camp: traumatized, yet courageous, determined, and optimistic. Like the young people whose stories I’ve heard, these children make heroic efforts to let the world know of the plight of war-ravished and impoverished people, especially in Africa. The message comes through loud and clear: We can all do our part, in some way, to lessen the suffering of innocent children. Learn more at The Leopard Tree or order the book on Amazon.
